Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

When the sequel came out, it was impressive how well the cast of Trainspotting had all aged. Alas, Crosslands, the Maryhill bar with the balcony from which Begbie famously flung his chaotic pint, wasn’t growing old so gracefully. The Kelbourne Saint is its shiny new identity. Owners Kained Holdings lend a steady hand to their units, with the group’s specially brewed Apache lager (by WEST) exclusively available here in tank form, for optimum freshness. The tank’s copper sheen blends in with the overall ‘bar-brasserie’ feel of the place. Rotisserie chicken is the main focus of the food, with collard greens and mashed potato reiterating the homestyle choices they’ve made. Everything is enjoyable, though the roast chicken perhaps lacks the fullness of flavour that its provenance and brining promises. But with a gigantic big beer garden and plans for music events and barbecues in the summer, and some student friendly burger deals too, this place generally plays its hand pretty well.
